Win A New Year’s Eve Kit From Carnival Cruise In Celebration Of Didja Ever Campaign!

CONTESTS | | December 28, 2010 at 10:06 am


Congratulations Carissa!

There will be many highlights that happened in 2011 which I (hopefully) will be covering later but the one that stands out the most is the Carnival Cruise my family and I took ( read my earlier posts to see our entire escapade). The family time it afforded us was priceless. It is one of those moments we will never forget. In fact my daughters, even the one just 3 years old smiles when we talk about it. I got the message clearly about how much the family time meant on a vacation.

CarnivalCruise Lines unveiled its “Hey America, Didja Ever” campaign that inspires people to try new things. Carnival will help consumers share, fulfill and celebrate first-time experiences throughout the year, driven by the “Didja Ever” campaign more details on Knowing the memories the cruises give to people I am proud that they want to make new memories come true.

Wait – it gets better – Carnival is helping to ring in the New Year as the official confetti sponsorship of the Times Square New Year’s Eve 2011 celebration, and also promoting the “Didja Ever” campaign. Speaking about celebrations the New York Times Square is the ultimate in New Year’s Eve celebrations but Carnival is giving one of Mommy Niri readers a chance to have a celebration of their own.

Do you want to win one of Carnival’s New Year’s Eve Celebration Kits?

This contest will close by 9pm EST tonight Tuesday December 28th and winner will have to contact me back by 11:59pm EST else a new winner will be drawn. That way the winner will get the kit in time to have their own New Year’s Eve Party!.

To win leave a comment below – any comment! Contest closes 28th December  2010 9pm EST. (please don’t leave your email address in the comment). Winner chose by and MUST reply with details by 11:59pm EST or a new winner will be chosen. Prize will be sent in time for New Years Eve!

To earn extra entries you can do the following, after you have left a comment answering the question, but make sure you leave a separate comment entry for each extra thing you do (please don’t leave your email address in the comment).  This gives you additional ways to win the contest but are optional entries.

    I love the concept of trying new things – it is easy to get stuck in a daily rut – one of the things I’ve resolved to do in the new year is to pull from list of 40 things to do before I turn 40 and work through all of the places I’ve dreamed of visiting…

    I am always trying to find new things for my daughter to try so “didja” is something we kind of live by. We are actually planning on taking our first cruise this coming year and the NYE kit would be a great way to kick that off – we’ll both have a new “didja” in 2011. Thanks!

    I think it important to consistently try new things. We often insulate ourselves from the world around us and it only does a disservice to us so I think it is a keen idea that Carnival is promoting!
